Former Pioneer Press reporter Hank Shaw is back in the Twin Cities today to promote his book, Hunt, Gather, Cook: Finding the Forgotten Feast. You may remember Hank from his investigative reporting on the business ties between some Minnesota politicians and a Minneapolis-based telephone company accused of cheating customers in seven states.
Hank’s latest venture has nothing to do with politics. It’s all about food. Hank, who now lives in California, writes about foraging, hunting and fishing on his blog, and in his book.
He’ll be at the Corner Table in Minneapolis tonight, signing books and talking about wild foods in the Midwest. He says tonight’s menu will include “four courses, all wild Minnesota ingredients (or ranched game equivalents, as it is illegal to sell real wild game)”.
